  1. I will add that we used one of those little plastic body push pins with a couple washers to fix the button on our pedals. just need to fit the hole. Most common problem why cruise quit working. Dad
  2. Minimal vibration- UNLESS you are rebuilding and replaced a connecting rod, when I was offering rebuilt rod sets I would purchase 200 rod cores at a time, I found variances of up to 40 grams in weight. If you are running original rods you should be fine but if replacing one I suggest getting the set balanced. Dad
  3. Well when you need parts I'm here. Dads Engine Parts. Dad
  4. Since you said you tightened up the balance chain I suspect balance shaft bearing failure. That is what comes to mind first. The timing chain has some slack until oil pressure pushes out the tensioner. If indeed it's knocking you will do more damage by running it. Dad
  5. Interested in what you used? I have to pull my dash because it's clogged somwhere in there.
  6. Coldscrip is my other son. He did buy a red one, had 2 cars built 1 later he did restore the red one. I know we picked one up in indiana, thought the other one was from ohio
  7. Airdam was red, cars was and is black. Dad

    BaT 87 Quest

    I sold that back in 2021 owned it 10 years Dad
  10. Check it out Starquest on youtube Dad
  11. Oil runs thru the rocker shafts, so it may not be the head, was the block resurfaced without the front cover attached? Dad Dads Engine Parts
  12. You can remove oil pan, valve cover. Pressure test cooling system, Is there any oil in the coolant? Is it burning coolant out exhaust also?. Was block magnafluxed for cracks? Front cover area can be suspect, the throttle body/ intake has coolant running through it. only a few areas where coolant can leak into oil. Dad

  19. Throttle body rebuild kits have new regulator parts in it if you want to stay stock, If you overhaul the throttle body, you may want to consider replacing throttle body shaft seals. I stock both @ Dads Engine Parts
  20. I'm back! https://www.enginemachineservice.com/ems/conquest.php Clean all oil off cover, put a small amount of rtv in the cover groove, Put cover gasket in cover, put small amount of rtv at half moon seal and around rear cam cap, install cover and tighten alternating between bolts torque is 4 to 5 foot lbs. Let it set a bit before starting Dad
  21. Zinc needs to be added to the oil to break in cam and rocker arms. Noisy usually means set too loose unless the cam is getting worn. Let us know what you find. Dad
  22. Vac advance causes a hiccup Won't hurt to replace it since they can cause grief
  23. I was contacted today by Nick Ventmiller, He is Marks son, Mark has been a long time member of this community, He was know for polishing rims, supplying rims, No one could compare to the work that he did. Mark is in Hospice care and doesn't have much time left. Nick said he met a ton of people and loved the Starquest community. Please keep Mark and his family in your Thoughts and prayers. Dad
